    Is the file on removable media? I suspect so. It simply means that there is a data error somewhere on the disk and not all the data for your file can be read properly. Probably nothing you can do about it. About you running Windows ME on your machine. Are you sure you want to do that? Seriously. Garbage in = Garbage out.

    OK, I kinda figured you were printing a document, like you said in your original post, but I'm going to assume now that the document is on a hard disk drive. In that case it would be very rare to get a cyclic redundency error. Keep in mind that I'm not as qualified as say, a forum administrator, I just noticed nobody had bothered to answer your post. Strange getting that from a HDD so better investigate possible problem with the data on your disk. Try running a surface scan to check for bad sectors on the drive in question, run all tests to check for errors on your disk. Surface scan will take quite some time. If you have windows help installed I'm sure you can find the directions on how to do this. Just a suggestion, can't hurt.
